How do you fundamentally transform a nation from what it has been to what a clique of ideologues wants it to be? The easiest way is to convince the general population that what the would-be masters want is what the people want. Those seeking to subvert a culture must take a long view. They must realize that this will be a multistage project that will take generations to achieve.?
Just three months ago, Boehner was singing a different tune. At the time he said, “We’re going to continue to do everything we can to repeal the President’s failed health care law. This week the House will pass a continuing resolution that locks the sequester savings in and defunds Obamacare.” What a phony.
As much as I would like to stop talking about, writing about, and/or hearing about OBAMACARE, I just can't escape it. I suspect you have found yourself as exasperated as I am. If not, certainly, you soon shall be. See -- it's going to get worse.
The vast majority of human action reflects the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings of the actor. There have always been and there will always be those whose actions are erratic or divorced from reality. The actions of this small minority are best ascribed to pathology not philosophy. For the rest of us we think, therefore we are. What we think about today, we act upon tomorrow.
What is it with Democrats and dictators? They (Democrats) just seem to love them (dictators) so! It was often said of Jimmy Carter that he never met a dictator he didn't like. You may recall it was President Carter who provided sanctuary/asylum (whichever!) for the Shah of Iran. We are still, to this day, paying for that blunder!
Ginny Thomas recently interviewed Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI). She mentioned that it seems conservatives not only have to war against Leftist Democrats who are trying to "fundamentally transform" our country, but we also have to fight the feckless GOP establishment. Amish responded with candor.
Have you ever wondered why so many liberal "Republicans" are so hell-bent on alienating people in their party who actually believe in Republican values and principles? Well, it seems that old saying "follow the money" is as true as ever, and true of what passes for "Republicans" these days.
Add Alfonzo Rachel to the growing list of people who have growing concerns about the new national Common Core education standards which elitists seem determined to shove down the American people's throats. Zo found that a student's Common Core survey wanted to find out about the parents' political leanings. More than that, the survey actually seemed designed not so much to find out the political leanings of the children and their parents, but to shape what the children thought about the U.S. Constitution and our God-given rights.
I’m probably one of the biggest "Andy Griffith Show" fans that ever lived! The good news is, there are honest people out there, like the character of Aunt Bee. Though they're becoming harder to find, there are still people out there that are willing to change their minds...if the evidence is compelling enough; and if they're open to truth. (That one is extremely important. If they don't care about truth... you're wasting your breath.)
We might give the most rational, well-constructed, evidence-filled line of reasoning. We might show from the evidence, from the premises, from the arguments, from the logic, and, maybe even from Scripture (if necessary) what the truth is. And, having constructed this awesome edifice of calculation, we would assume that the proper response will be -- could only be -- submission to the truth. Wrong.Next Page »
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
